Blanket coverage

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s Namibian adventure.  She came across one of their famous two headed giraffes and sent me this shot.  It may have more legs than the usual giraffe too. Our sunny weather came to an end today and we had grey skies and rather chillier temperatures but it remained dryContinue reading “Blanket coverage”

Under a cloud

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who visited Birmingham for an organ recital and took some time out to enjoy the canals while he was there. We had what was possibly the last of our run of fine sunny days today and once again we started off with frost on the ground. TheContinue reading “Under a cloud”

Mrs Tootlepedal sticks some jewels in the ground

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia, my Somerset correspondent, who turns out to be in Namibia at the moment.  She sent me this portrait of male and female Long-tailed Paradise Whydahs.  The males are in full display mode. Our welcome spell of fine weather continued today but with a reminder that we are still inContinue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal sticks some jewels in the ground”

A song, a cycle and a tootle or two

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony.  As well as looking up at celestial wonders, he has also looked down and found a monster on the seashore. I drove south after breakfast to visit my singing teacher.  She lives under the shadow of the north of England hills and the mist was just burning offContinue reading “A song, a cycle and a tootle or two”

The lady varnishes

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony.  He has been looking up lately and as well as holes in clouds, he has seen the moon. We had another fine sunny day here today and because the wind had dropped, it felt really warm and we were able to discard several layers of winter clothing. WeContinue reading “The lady varnishes”

Ooops!

Today’s guest picture is a very strange aperture in the clouds sent to me by our son Tony. Perhaps the weather gods had opened their kitchen window to see what he was up to down below. We had a second sunny day running here today.   Once again, it was quite chilly after breakfast so IContinue reading “Ooops!”

What a bore

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by our friend Gavin.  Last week when we were enjoying wet and grey conditions here, he was over on the east coast basking in the sun on Tynemouth beach, a mere 80 miles away.   But it was chilly there too in the brisk wind in spite of theContinue reading “What a bore”

East is best

Today’s guest picture is another from Ada’s trip to Tenerife.  She saw lots of this attractive tree heather while she was there. It was another day when we couldn’t see much here as once again it was very grey and drizzly.  It has been reasonably warm though and there are flowers just waiting for aContinue reading “East is best”

Meteorologically miserable

Today’s guest pictures brings the only ray of sunshine into this post.  It was taken by my brother Andrew who was enjoying the fifty mile view from Alport Heights in Derbyshire at the time. It was a day about the weather of which, the less said the better.  It was wet and windy from dawnContinue reading “Meteorologically miserable”

An eponymous day with added extra

Today’s guest picture comes from Canada.  Lucie, who sent it to me, is scratching her head as to why she can’t find people anxious to share a cup of tea with her on her patio when there are such comfortable looking cushions to sit on. At least Lucie has had some sunshine.  We got anotherContinue reading “An eponymous day with added extra”
